How (not) to Live Fruitful & Blessed Lives – Isaiah 5
God wants to thrive. He wants to bless us. And he wants us to bear good fruit for his kingdom. In Isaiah 5, Judah demonstrates how she has completely failed to do that and so God brings judgement upon her. There are 6 “Woes” pronounced against her in this chapter and 4 “therefores” of judgement. It seems there is no hope, until Jesus arrives in the New Testament, describing himself as the True Vine and teaching us how to bear good fruit.
